She's written a new book called "Lean In" about how women prevent themselves from gaining a seat at the table by not aggressively competing.

 

Former State Lawmaker Chris Telfer, says she finds many women don't aspire to leadership positions.

 

That's why she's starting a women's political action committee to get more women in government.

 

"What I've found in elected positions, a lot of women don't think they can do it.  But there are a lot of women who would make great legislators, working for their constitutents to get good legislation done."

 

Sandberg says she wrote the book because she saw women working the same hours, working just as hard, but not getting the promotions.

 

Sandberg says women are tuaght its wrong to be outspoken, aggressive and consequently pull back when they should lean in.

 

Currently women hold 14 percent of Fortune 500 executive positions and 17 percent of board seats.
